3D Slotting & Product Placement

Finding a Home for Your Products

We understand that as a distributor, one of the biggest challenges is maintaining a safe and error-free warehouse with the lowest operating costs possible.

As a solution, DPSI uses powerful 3D Slotting tools built specifically to help design, visualize and optimize warehouse workflow by creating a digitized model of your warehouse operations.

3D Slotting combines unique layout-specific functionality with planning, visualization and analysis tools that help increase a facility’s overall design and operational efficiency while adhering to your requirements.

With 3D Slotting, you can design and evaluate multiple design layouts that meet your specific storage and distribution requirements, and produce the best option in regards to type, size, quantity and equipment.

Warehouse Slotting carefully considers the locations, opening dimensions, weight limitations (by level), product grouping, item slotting unit dimensions & weight, item picking unit dimensions & weight, among other factors, to correctly profile and sequence items down the pick path.

When products are properly slotted, heavier items are placed in the areas where they are easiest to pick, reducing the risk of injury and product damage.

Correct product placement for all inventory can significantly boost streamlined warehouse workflow and reduce overall operational costs.
